Today, we unveil our latest research in Beyond the Cubicle: Leapsome’s Workforce Trends Report. Why “Beyond the Cubicle”? Because work has transcended the four walls of an office space. Work happens in virtual meetings, collaborative digital platforms, at home, in the office, and on the go. It’s no longer about where we work but how we engage, grow, and thrive professionally, no matter the setting. 

Data remains the most reliable guide in a world where things change quickly — think new tech, shifting opinions, and fast-moving trends. We’ve helped over 1,500 companies improve their workplaces, and we know firsthand that solid facts back smart decisions. That’s why research is essential to us at Leapsome. Rather than making assumptions about what HR leaders and employees need, we asked them. 

New work dynamics

With the weight of a cost of living crisis, the devastating impact of large-scale layoffs, and employees navigating the ensuing mental and emotional strain, the world of work is reeling. HR leaders, in particular, are grappling with many challenges: The surge of AI, an increasingly globalized workforce, and the ongoing balancing act between remote, hybrid, and return-to-office urgently require agility and adaptability. In these transformative times, it’s vital for companies to manage organizational change and evolving employee needs effectively.

With this backdrop, Leapsome embarked on a comprehensive study to take the pulse of HR leaders and employees in this new age of work. Amid the prevailing uncertainty, we wanted to measure HR preparedness to promote employee engagement, productivity, and growth while assessing employee satisfaction.

Together with YouGov, we spoke to over 2,500 full-time professionals from across the globe. We asked them about their mental health and work-life balance, meeting habits and feedback rituals, performance reviews, AI usage, and everything in between. 

The research shows a concerning gap between what employees need at work and what companies offer. Fortunately, our findings reveal the people strategies needed for organizational resilience and success in the new world of work.
